Understanding Resolution - Getting Started
Resolution is the fineness of detail in a given image. It is measured in pixels per inch (ppi), often referred to as dots per inch (dpi). The more pixels per inch, the higher the resolution and quality of an image.
Our high quality digital scrapbooking files are created at 300 dpi, and you should create your layouts at this resolution.
The higher the resolution, the larger the file size. It is standard for images viewed on the web or via e-mail to be saved at 72 dpi. For printing, however, images should be saved at 300 dpi or they will appear pixilated.
